Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Quit complaining!

I'm sick and tired of all the whining!
What makes us entitled to download soundboard recordings for free? Just because at one point in time the band had a tolerant attitude towards taping & trading? Wake up everyone, the world has changed. Who could know at that time the internet and digitization would have such a profound impact? The Grateful Dead generously allowed their fans to tape & trade, now they generously allow us to stream amazing music from this incredible library. Be grateful! Plug your computer into your sound system and enjoy! Support the band, purchase Dicks Picks and other Grateful Dead products. The band that has provided all of us so much pleasure over all these years, deserve to earn a living from their music.

This reminds me of a bit I just reread in the bio, LENNON by Ray Coleman.

John was on the way to London in 1965, and while waiting at a traffic light, girls spotted the Beatle in the back of his Rolls-Royce.

As they banged on the doors, making dents and smearing lipstick all over the car, John's chauffer became irritable and was about to get out and push them away.

"Leave them," snapped John. "They bought the car. They've got the right to smash it up."

the law allows us- see my posts from the 11/12/05-12/31/05 time frame- just clock on my name- you will see them- there is NO federal law regarding the copying of live music recordings- which leacves us with 50 state laws- none of which ban the copying of live music which was ALLOWED to be recorded by the artists

I know, Diana, I will go away now.
